Our friendly team is readily accessible. We take the time to listen and we can cover all aspects of your healthcare needs because we work together as a team.

CORPORATE HEALTH

If you designate us as your preferred medical practitioner we can supply GP services when you need them. For example if your employee requires medical assistance for an accident or illness, you will be able to access quality healthcare promptly, and in accordance with your health and safety requirements.

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SERVICES

We provide specialised medical services to local industries including pre-employment medicals and the care of employees after accidents. This also involves working together with the employer and the employee to advance the rehabilitation of injured employees with the goal to return to work as soon as possible.
“We take an active role in your health management, we would like to see you before you become unwell, so we can assess your personal health risks and put strategies in place to keep you well. After all, prevention is better that cure.”

We are a team of highly skilled health professionals, who care about our community. We work with mining and other industries in the Buller region, to promote a healthy work force.
